Weekend Weaving, section 2


This is Section Two. See Section One HERE. Choose only one section.

This lively and intensive course is designed as an introduction to the basic techniques of weaving: winding a warp, dressing the loom and weaving a finished piece. Also included will be an exploration of the basic woven structures – plain weave and twills in their many variations, designing and drafting a project and calculating yarn requirements. You will also learn about looms and equipment, yarns, and finishing techniques.  Looms are provided.  This is a great experience for beginners as well as weavers who would like a refresher.
